Announced on Monday were Jon Connor, followed by Chase N Cashe, Chinx Drugz and Troy Ave . Tuesday was Skeme, then Audra The Rapper and Maffew Ragazino. Wednesday was Lore’l then Neako and Smoke DZA. Yesterday we featured Dom Kennedy and Kid Ink, and now we’re up to Day 5…our last day. First up we have Action Bronson.

For today’s first, we chose West Coast emcee Dom Kennedy. We reached out for a freestyle and got word back he doesn’t really rock with Flex like that! But here at IFWT, we judge by the music and regardless of personal beefs, we still feel he’s one to watch for 2012 so we’ll be keeping you guys updated with all of his latest work!
